The BlackBerry Torch 9860 has been officially launched in India today. It follows in the footsteps of two other recently unveiled BlackBerry smartphones, the Torch 9810 and the Bold 9900, which have already made it to India. All three aforementioned devices run the latest BlackBerry OS 7, of course.
The BlackBerry Torch 9860 is the successor to the failed Storm series, and as such is a ‘touch only’ device. So there’s no physical QWERTY keyboard anywhere to be found on it.
The Torch 9860 has been priced at Rs. 28,490 (which translates into approximately $599 or €435) and is now available across India. It has a 3.7-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera with 720p HD video recording, 4 GB of built-in storage, 768 MB of RAM, microSD card support, 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,230 mAh battery.
